    To uninstall mailman, first issue the command to make sure you know what mailman version package you have:

    rpm -q mailman

    You should see something like:

    mailman-2.1.1-5
    mailman-2.1.1-7.legacy

    Then just use rpm to uninstall:

    rpm -e mailman-2.1.1-5
    rpm -e mailman-2.1.1-7.legacy

    As to your blank email problem, there was another thread about that just a few days ago:

    http://forum.plesk.com/showthread.php?threadid=25342

    If needed, you may also want to force a re-install of qmail. After the Plesk install, have you added or updated any other packages on the system??

    Obviously it's a pre-existing system which I assume the email was working before, now suddenly it's not working. So the first thing would be to find out what changes to the server happened, such as software update/installs...

    hello

    from what i understand i have exactly the same problem.

    last night my server was unreachable via network access it however, after logging in via the serial console, seemed to be running fine. i rebooted it, twice and waited - finally it seemed to be running ok again.

    apparantly after this, every mail i get on any account of the server (no matter if it's imap/pop3 "stored" or forwarded to an external addess) is completely blank except for this being the raw message (nothing else in it):

    i changed the addresses, of course. :p

    the only "error" message i got so far, in the maillog:
    does anybody have an idea what could be wrong? i'd really appreciate any help. thank you.

    sternwart - my post about mailman was in answer to your direct question about how to uninstall/reinstall mailman, it did not address your regular mail problem (which has nothing to do with mailman - mailing list manager), but you did not post anything from your logs, which makes it difficult to diagnose.

    honigferd - ahhh, now we have an actual log error to work with, wonderful!!!

    There was another post at:

    http://forum.plesk.com/showthread.php?threadid=21384&perpage=15&pagenumber=1

    where one user (clydetech) found (by looking at the process list 'ps -ax') that he was running regular spamassassin instead of psa-spamassassin. Once he got that cleared up, the error went away and mail was again delivered with the fields not blank.

    No problem, searching is an art, many times requires finesse in getting the right search terms and such. I actually cheated and used Google search with the site: command instead of the built-in forum search...

    Just for future reference, which exact thing(s) did you do which fixed your problem? Future readers may want to know. Was it the spamassassin vs psa-spamassassin?

    psa-spamassassin was uninstalled and the .qmail files are still refering one of its binaries. Simply execute:

    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/mchk

    very dirty but simple solution:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/psa-spamc

    was a binary file for me.
    so i just changed the file with my favourite text-editor to look like this:

    rebooted the whole machine (to be safe) and my mails showed up like they should again.

    however, one thing i realized so far, which has been discussed in the post you linked:
    the mails don't get flagged by spamassassin anymore - but for now i couldn't care less, i will investigate this no the weekend.
    aslong as my customers can actually receive mails again i'm satisfied.

    Mail furnish newly (badly however effectively)

    Thank you for your assistance!!

    I could do a solving with that which I all Mails again furnished. It was the problem that somehow verkuepfung to the Mailusers any longer did not function.

    Now I have a new question:
    The RAM on the server within 24 H will grant fully = load 995 MB as soon as I the server start again has I again 330 MB load?? Does someone have a tip from you?? Unfortunately so well English cannot! But are at the lerning.

    Many thanks Sascha
